Saint-Germain Church Calvary and Ossuary to Pleyben

The Church of Pleyben (Saint-Germain) is distinguished by its size, the richness of its details and the variety of its architecture, where the pure Gothic is mixed with the style of the renaissance. It is surmounted by a high tower square, breakthrough long windows that give light and covered with a dome above which rises a sort of Lantern. The upper cornice is surrounded by a gallery, and the four angles amounted pinnacles ending with dome as the Lantern.

The portal which held in this square Tower is of a rare elegance; the statues of the twelve apostles, which decorate internally, escaped destruction. There are on the front two other towers joined together by arches. Closest to the large Tower is higher, but less elegant than the other. In total, all this work is wonderful force, science and skill. The windows of the apse, the purest Gothic, are an admirable boldness.

The reliquary which is located in the cemetery is probably earlier than the Church. It was a delicious monument that deserved to be kept, only was for the history of art; but the administration found more convenient to use by clogging its charming arcades into primary school! We recommend that evidence of progress and civilization and the constitutional writers.

There are also in the cemetery of Pleyben one of these curious so common calvaries in Finistère. It is mounted on a base pierced at right angles by arches that communicate, figures are less numerous than in Plougastel, but better comic, and draped with more grace. This ordeal is due to the skew of an Ozanne family in which the talent seems to be perpetuated.

It is near Pleyben that was the old Treziguidy Castle, now destroyed, and place of which rises a ridiculous House. We however recommend this place the traveller for its landscape.

Official description

The Ministry of culture teaches us that the ossuary dates from the 15th century, while the Church is from the sixteenth century and the 2nd quarter 17th century Calvary (1650).

The Church has two bell towers. One, in the style of the 15th century, communicates via an air passage with the turret of the staircase. The other, of the 16th century, is crowned by domes and a lantern.

The Church porch door vintages 1588 and 1591; the Interior of 1564. The Church bears witness, in its architecture, the transition between the Gothic and the Renaissance.
